    Combining well-thought-out design with excellent value for money, Laufen has extended its popular Pro series of sanitaryware and furniture to include the Pro S.Giving retailers the opportunity to offer customers flexibility of design, high-end technical features and the latest contemporary styling at a competitive price-point, Pro S combines perfectly with the classic Laufen Pro collection whilst pointing aesthetically towards the manufacturer’s premium designer ranges.

    Designed by Peter Wirz, Laufen Pro S features several different washbasins, in widths of 55, 60, 65 and 70cm, with integrated shelves on the left and right in 85 and 105cm widths and a 130cm wide double washbasin. As a vanity unit solution, the range includes furniture washbasins with base units measuring 60, 80 and 100cm widths. The super-thin ceramic of just 18mm gives the washbasins a very delicate and elegant appearance, whilst the deep basin and generous shelf space either side ensure this will be a highly functional addition to any bathroom space. For the guest bathroom, matching hand washbasins in the smaller sizes of 36, 45 and 48cm are also available

    A highlight of the new Pro S collection is a geometric, rectangular wall-hung WC, with a matching bidet, which has been designed to co-ordinate perfectly with the washbasins in the range. The low-level flush WC offers an equally clean, powerful flush with 6/3 and 4.5/3 litres, enabling it to be promoted as much for its water-saving benefits as for its aesthetic qualities. And with an ergonomically designed seat, the Pro S WC is the first truly comfortable square-edged WC to be brought to market. The good news for installers is that Laufen has developed a hidden wall-hung WC mounting system, to greatly reduce fitting time.

    Completing the Laufen Pro S line-up is a new range of furniture base units, in classic clear designs to provide essential storage space below the washbasin. Robust and highly functional, the furniture features design details that has previously only been found on pieces with a much higher price tag. Integrated handles and soft-close drawers with no cumbersome trap cut-out all come as standard with Pro S, whilst optional interior drawers and adjustable aluminium feet are also available.

    Laufen Pro S furniture is available in on trend colours including white glossy, white matt, wenge and graphite, along with 38 other colour options. A floorstanding chrome guard rail for the 85 and 105cm washbasins completes the Pro S collection, which gives the retailer a variety of ways to grab the attention of customers, beyond the attractive price point. For the first time Laufen are offering retailers the opportunity to order vanity packs, containing a basin and matching unit, under one code to make ordering simple.
